Brian WilsonThat Lucky Old Sun (with bonus tracks) ... CD
Capitol, 2008. Used ... $4.99
A bright, upbeat and sunny orch pop effort from the man who invented sunny orch pop – free of the dour, troubled undertow of his tortured masterpieces of the late 60s – and lets face it, we want the man healthy so that's a good thing! Brian Wilson composed and arranged with many of the collaborators from his latter day Smile triumph – with sweet odes to the love, southern Cali, and sunshine. The arrangements are sweeping and lovely, with rich but unfussy string arrangements, vibes, horns and keys – with poetic spoken narratives written by the one-and-only Van Dyke Parks. Titles include "That Lucky Old Sun", "Morning Beat", "Room With A View", "Good Kind Of Love", "Forever She'll Be My Surfer Girl", "Venice Beach", "Mexican Girl", "Cinco De May" and more. CD

✨✧ IncognitoJazzfunk ... CD
Ensign (UK), 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Early early work from the Brit jazz funk ensemble Incognito! Jean Paul "Bluey" Maunick was just starting out when he cut this album during the early 80s – but the record's got a tightly grooving sound that shows all the power that he'd later have during the 90s, mixed with some excellent "end of the 70s" smooth funky jazz playing. This CD reissue of the album features the bonus single with tracks "Parisienne Girl" and "Summer's Ended" – plus the tracks "Sunburn", "Smile Of A Child", "Walking On Wheels", "Shine On", "Wake Up The City", and "Chase The Clouds Away".

✨✧ Andre KostelanetzPlays Michel Legrand's Greatest Hits/Plays Chicago ... CD
Columbia/Vocalion (UK), 1971/1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An older bandleader takes on sounds from two different groovy sources of the 70s – both of them great! Plays Michel Legrand has Andre Kostelanetz serving up some sweet versions of tunes from some of Legrand's famous soundtracks of the 60s and early 70s – most of them done with fairly broad string arrangements, but underscored with some of the groovier tones and timings that make Michel's music so great. Andre never gets too overemotional, even when things are lush – and titles include "What Are You Doing For The Rest Of Your Life", "Summer Of 42", "Lady Sings The Blues", "Orson's Theme", "Once Upon A Summertime", and "Pieces Of Dreams". Plays Chicago is even weirder, but maybe even cooler too – as Andre Kostelanetz handles the music of Chicago – stripping the tunes of the heavy brass styles you might expect, and instead washing them heavily in strings, which then often get a similar dynamic range to the horns! Arrangements are from Don Sebesky, Torri Zito, Luther Henderson, Marty Manning, and Al Capps – and titles include "Fancy Colours", "Make Me Smile", "Questions 67 & 68", "Beginnings", "25 Or 6 To 4", "Flight 602", and "Wake Up Sunshine".
